It’s all well and good to make some variety of life for yourself but what could it possibly be worth if you don’t totally, like, know who you are.

In amongst that writhing mass of humanity it’s of paramount concern that you take a moment or two to consider what it is that makes you truly special and unique.

You know, either that or piss off to Bali or similar for as long as you can in an effort to stave off the horrible crushing world of adulthood.
